CHEAP TUMMY FAT REDUCTION: For Those Tied to their Desk Work

It's something like this!
shape.com
Few people on earth aren't bothered by their tummies. Most likely, you are among those who are. You want to trim down your tummy size to flat level but you find it too expensive to do--let alone find time for it because your job or business ties you to your desk work all day.

So, why not try this cheap tummy fat reduction strategy?

When you're sitting at your desk, take tummy exercise breaks. You simply pull your knees up as high as you can to your chest, one at a time. Do it slowly but make sure the knee go as high as it can. Then hold it at that height for 10 seconds. Do 10 repetitions each knee. Inhale as you lift the knee and exhale as you hold it for 10 seconds. You may place each hand at each side of the rear end of your chair for support.

It's something like the image above. Do this several times each day--preferably 4 times in the morning and 4 times in the afternoon. You don't have to leave your desk to do this and you won't have to buy special equipment. It's really for cheap tummy fat reduction.

Then supplement it with this weight loss diet. Eat this for breakfast:
  1. 2 boiled eggs
  2. A good size of sweet potato
  3. Oatmeal with some milk and brown sugar
  4. 2 bananas
  5. Soya curd (taho) or soya milk
The boiled eggs you should eat only two times a week. Make sure you consult your doctor about this weight loss diet.



Then, for lunch, eat just enough of everything while limiting your rice to a cup. For supper, eat no rice.

If this is okay with you, I'd add a little of push-ups if I were you. If you're a newbie to exercise, do 15 to 20 push-ups early in the morning and in the afternoon.When I was  an employee, I did push-ups early mornings, after lunch at about 2 pm at the office, and another one late in the afternoon when I got home.

This cheap tummy fat reduction program is really "cheap"--it's cheap health and fitness with middle income budget. Do this diligently for 6 months and see the result.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…
